Pilot Adult BootcampA pilot program by Fiero Code.
Chapter 1: Your Invited…
Fiero Code is the leading learn-to-code software for public libraries around the world. For the last 8 years we have put all of our effort into building an amazing product geared for kids ages 8-18.
We’re on a mission to help peolpe unlock a hopeful future, and to that end, we’re beginning to expand to adult learners – that’s you!
We have a vision to empower libraries and schools and even higher ed instituations to begin using Fiero to run “coding bootcamps” where adults get trained up enough in 6-12 months to get their first job in computer programming.
In Feb, 2023 we are starting a pilot program with a small group of adults to begin learning about how to utilize Fiero Code for adult learners. You are invited to be a part of this cohort!
Chapter 2: The Deets
- This bootcamp will meet once a week for 1 year via a video call (Google Meet).
- Each session will last 1 hour.
- Cohort members will be given access to Fiero Code’s learn-to-code software and can work throughout the week as much as they’d like.
- The bootcamp sessions:
- Give everyone at least 1 hour to code each week (individuals can learn more on their own throughout the week).
- Give people a chance to get help if they’re stuck on something.
- Give members an opportunity to show off what they’ve learned or built recently.
Fiero Code is built on a model that empowers learners to go at their own pace and work on whatever is interesting to them. To that end, our learning software has a lot of different types of content and participants will be able to chart their own course.
The software utilizes tutorial videos with practical lessons where you will actually be writing code. It also has numerous project options to help you solidify your skills.
The end result is that a number of the cohort (if not everyone!) would begin to apply for jobs at the end of the year, or whenever individuals are ready for that step.
Mondays at 6pm Eastern / 5pm Central / 4pm Mountain / 3pm Pacific.
Summer and fall schedules can adapt to the cohort as needed.
- Participants are expected to attend as many weekly sessions as they can. There is no requirement to be at a certain amount of sessions, but attend plan on attending as many as possible.
- Be prepared to be a member of the cohort – this means you’re willing to help other members when they get stuck, encourage others, and generally be a postive presence in the group.
- No coding experience required!
Who this is for
This pilot program is a good fit for anyone who thinks coding could provide a more hopeful future for them. This includes:
- Stay at home moms
- Anyone thinking about a career change.
- People in full time ministry who are interested in a bi-vocational skill.
